Plush Wall-e Toy

I was inspired by another instructable for Eve from Wall-e. Taking a look at Wall-e, he's made of fairly simple shapes. So I grabbed some reference images off the internet, and started plugging away. This is meant to be a Christmas present for my two year old, not to win any beauty contests. It's also intended for her to sleep with, so I wanted it to be as soft as possible, which meant keeping the seams to a minimum and losing some details.

I'm a visual person, so most of the instructions will be in the photos.

Step 1: What You'll Need

I was making this up as I went, so I didn't really check how much fabric I used. It was just what I had available. So I'm pretty sure my list will be more than enough for you.

*A basic knowledge of how to sew with a needle and a machine. I'm far from an expert on sewing, but I made it work.
*It may help to study how to sew a cube.
*Basic sewing supplies, including a sewing machine. I also used a serger, but that is optional.
*A [http://www.instructables.com/id/Cheap-Light-Box-for-drawing-or-inking-or.../ light box] is helpful, but optional.

*About a yard of yellow or orange fleece (you can use other materials if you like, but fleece is really soft).
*About a yard of gray fleece.
*About a half a yard of black fleece.
*A scrap of blue or black satin (about 8" square or so).
*Two very large buttons (At least 1")
*Thread. Duh.

Step 2: The Cube

We'll start with the cube. You'll need 6 squares of your yellow or orange fabric, 12" square.

One of these squares will need a three inch strip of gray across the top. On that same square, you'll want to add the Wall-e logo at the bottom right corner. I embroidered it, but there are multiple other ways to accomplish the same thing.

I then sewed four of them together to make a tube, which I added the top and bottom to. Make sure you leave a small opening for stuffing.

just finished making this. It took a while because my son kept running away with it. Very cool project!! The only things I changed were the color ( my son wanted everything yellow and brown) and I added elbows to the arms (at my husbands request)

Wall-E was grey?
micjwelch (author)  Argool5 years ago
Wall-e was gray, yes. He was just a bit rusted after 700 years. :-)
very nice... cuddly Wall-E, it just had to be done.
